This was once a sugar mill town on the south coast of Kauai. Today, it's mostly a cluster of tourist-oriented shops and restaurants, though the old buildings have some historical/architectural interest.

We made extensive us of the Big Save market for provisions and got coffee at the Aloha Roastery. There is also a food truck park here with several good food trucks. I highly recommend staying in the area.

Old Koloa Town is a quaint little stop and we like to stop by every time we visit. Cute shops, good restaurants, and a bit of history to boot. And lots of shade, too, which is always nice with the tropical sun.

This town is primarily a collection of gift shops located right at the end of the tree tunnel. It's right on the way to Poipu so you can't miss it. It's also home of Koloa Zipline which was a great experience.

It is the Christian Riso Fine Art and it is open for business. I know the owners and it is NOT closing. They do some of the best framing I have ever seen!!
